I want to alert all the future R22 owners that they had better double check their “standard” hanger door opening. I have, and discovered that the R22 will only fit with the aid of a shoe horn. Each hanger door varies in its construction and the 39-40 ft opening you think you have is NOT the case.
This is the one difference in the R22, from the R20, that didn’t dawn on me until I saw the plane at AOPA (after I had made the deposit). I just vent this concern because it helps me deal with my stupidity, embarrassment, and reality that I may have to pass on this plane. My position is #155, so if you see a for sale sign, you’ll know why.
